Martin Abel Design: I am a freelance graphic and web designer based in Crouch End, North London. My services can be divided between graphic design and website design, but clients benefit from my experience in both areas.

As a graphic designer and website designer in North London, I work in a very competitive area. London is deemed to be a global centre of excellence for design, so you have come to the right place for the latest innovations. If you haven't used a freelance designer before, then you will be pleasantly surprised to know that I am more economical than an agency or a high street vendor. The bottom line is that you get a very personalized service and a great deal more for your money.

Graphic design covers a huge area, so it is best to contact me for a chat if you have a project. Anything from logos/branding, stationery, posters, leaflets, brochures, catalogues, ads, invitations and much more, just give me a call 07775 833616. I also have excellent contacts for printers and other design related services.

Website development also covers a very large area. Because of my combined experience in graphic design and website development, I am able to deliver novel sites which will never be 'me too'. Anything from a personal site, to a full e-commerce site with CMS, feel free to contact me. If your project is a very large enterprise, then I am able to draw on an extended development team who have proven to be exceptional at delivering high quality web solutions.

Customer Testimonials

I cannot thank you enough for all the help you have given us in redesigning our charity website. Right from the earliest discussions of your initial concept through to its careful, phased implementation and your continuing backup which is so reassuring, we have really appreciated your patience and your speedy response whenever we need a bit of extra help.
If ever you would like a happy client to talk to a potential new one please don’t hesitate to call me.

I’ve used Martin a number of times including website design. He is always great to work with, helpful, creative and rigorous. That, I think, is a rare combination. He knows his stuff whether it’s with design, building or delivery. He is always willing to advise and add value and explain things simply. I always enjoy working with him and he is always my first port of call.

Dear Martin, I wanted to let you know two things that I thought you might like to hear. One is that I have just successfully managed to edit my website, to add on some reviews of the Ken Clarke book. The other is that I got a new and very exciting project last month, and the authors who chose me did it largely on the basis of my website. Thanks Martin!

Happy Christmas and a prosperous (stable) new year to all my clients past and present. If you wonder why I don't really publish much on this Facebook page.. well it's because it's pretty worthless as a promotional tool. The monetisation of platforms like

If you do your own Adword campaigns, then remember to continually check your 'keywords and phrases' list. Those lovely Google Adword people love to automatically add in suggested phrases to your list and make them active. Some of which are not correctly

How sad that things you relied on change for the worse. Adobe Stock used to allow individual image purchases. That's great for freelancers. Unfortunately they've changed to a money grabbing 'subscription model'. Thanks Adobe, and bye. [sad face]

BAD Snapchat: Tip for the day if you have a teenager with Snapchat. The new App contains a 'Snap Map' feature. Great for bullying and stalkers because it shows others exactly where your teenager is at any time. A REALLY bad idea Snapchat. Even Apple lock

Writing this is a bit like shouting into an empty cave. It might seem loud, but apart from hearing an echo in your own head, it has almost not effect and reaches very few people. FB are slowly killing pages for businesses. It seems that unless you actually

From Our Website

No two websites are the same and your brief might include something unique. Here's just a selection of items that are easy to include, but this is just a drop in the ocean.

Logo design often comes at the start of a business, club or enterprise. It is the corner stone for all your branding elements; your website, stationery, business cards, leaflets, posters, email footers etc. If you need a logo, then contact me. Logo design work fits into three categories. Please see the boxes below for an explanation, or skip to the main examples. I ask every client some questions before starting a project. These questions are essentially all about marketing and allow me to start working with sufficient information.

A brilliant local primary school in Guildford. If your school needs a website that is future proof and has very few overheads, then get in touch. I offer special community rates for schools and charities. Promotional items: I created leaflets/flyers, a calendar, Powerpoint templates, headed paper and business cards as core items, but also many other promotional items (print and digital). Some of these items were only identified during the project. I always build flexibility into any project so this wasn't a problem.
